Koko sits on a blue barrel at the edge of the large outdoor yard and appears to be catching up on her sleep (wonder what she was reading).
Gorillas typically sleep about 12-13 hours each night and often rest for several hours during the day. Koko and Ndume are no exception. What a great life – it”s a shame that some people want to destroy it, rather than emulate and coexist peacefully with it. The more we learn about gorillas, the more we appreciate them – and all of the other great ape species (which include us) – on this planet.
